CUHK ISEIS conducts the world’s first large scale glacier mass balance survey in the western part of High Mountains Asia

The cryospheric remote sensing team led by Prof. Lin Hui, Director of the Institute of Space and Earth Information Science (ISEIS) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), recently conducted the world’s first large scale glacier mass balance survey in the western part of ‘High Mountains Asia’, including the Tibetan Plateau, the West Kunlun, the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush and Pamir. This research helps scientists understand more about the ‘Karakoram anomaly’, and provides essential data for glaciology research and the prevention of glacier-related hazards. The research article has been published online in Scientific Reports....

CUHK ISEIS Analyzes "6.24" Landslide in Maoxian, Sichuan Province with Satellite Images

After a landslide occurred above Xinmo village in Maoxian, Sichuan on 24 June 2017, the InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) team led by Prof. Lin Hui, Director of the Institute of Space and Earth Information Science (ISEIS) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), downloaded the historical satellite imagery of the landslide area. Based on analysis of the data from the Sentinel-1 satellite of the European Space Agency from October 2014 to June 2017, it was found that the upper part of the landslide had previously had a directional movement. In addition, the time-series deformation had a strong seasonal trend, which was probably caused by the local glacial seasonal changes...
